Well, for one thing sshd(8) doesn't use login(1) by default,
so login.conf won't affect it at all.  You can change that
in login.conf(5), but doing so may have other consequences
(I haven't had enough coffee today to remember what they
could be; maybe checking mailing list archives would help).  

I think I'll go see if there's any coffee left...
